The Irish government website for finding Irish tenders, www.etenders.gov.ie lists new government contract opportunities daily. To ensure that you receive updates on tenders relevant to your business – be it legal tenders, construction tenders, healthcare tenders or IT tenders in Ireland – you must update your eTenders profile to include relevant keywords. To make this easier, the eTenders website uses codes called common procurement vocabulary, or CPV codes. This is a list of almost 10,000 types of things that Irish public bodies buy, including:
- Agricultural tenders
- Furniture tenders
- Vehicle tenders
- Professional services tenders
- Food tenders
- Printing tenders
- Medical devices tenders
Where each item has a code – for example the code 34113000-2 refers to 4-wheel-drive vehicles. The secret in setting up your eTenders profile is to search through the list of CPV codes and selecting all of those relating to your business. This maximises your chances of receiving relevant tender notices to your email each day.
